About Me

Most travelled Brazilian in the world.

You Tube: Igor Galli


As a tourist book writer, it is very important to me to meet the locals and interact with the culture, gastronomy and the way of life in every country I visit.


Born in Goiânia, the state capital of Goiás, located in the center of Brazil, my dream since childhood was to explore the world and experience its wonders and cultures. At the age of 22, after graduating in Tourism, my dream started to turn into reality. Traveler–researcher with an experience of 16 years of travel and adventure, I have been to 156 countries and 815 states and regions of our planet. I am the most traveled Brazilian and my name is among the top 50 most widely-traveled people in the world.
During my time on the road, I have hitchhiked across six continents, slept in local houses in more than 50 countries and lived with indigenous tribes in five continents. I have published weekly articles about tourism, related to my travels and I have published 3 books; Best Cultural Attractions in the World, Best Natural Attractions in the World and My_Walkabout.


Human being is incomparable equal to any other human being.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing




Travelling is my thing. I like to do sports (basketball, boxing, gym, jogging, swimming). Because it feels good to be in shape, I don't smoke, I drink very social and I like to eat healthy food. My others hobbies are dancing, learn new languages and music.
